Happy Father’s Day! Is anyone still reeling from the potential Triple Crown? I know I am! In my last Dark Report I failed to give Tonalist his due. So today I will honor Tonalist’s Belmont Stakes win! And since it is Father’s Day, I’ll take a look at some of the “fathers” in horse racing today who seem to be doing well. This week’s Dark Report contains some fathers, some handle, a winner, and more winners!

 (Whoa - it's me - the DARK HORSE)
 
Greetings and welcome to my "dark" blog!  I have been a fan of horse racing since I was about 12 years old.  Growing up in Minnesota, my dad would take me and my brothers to Canterbury Downs and I would practically beg to go every weekend!!  I made my first "big" score there hitting the win, place, and exacta in the same race at age 14 (pulled in $84 with horses named Railroad Red and Racers Dream!).  I even had a poster in my bedroom of Lost Code winning the 1987 St. Paul Derby!
 
While finishing school in Chicago, I spent every possible moment at Arlington Park with my dad.  We took the time to develop computer programs (on the ever popular Lotus 1-2-3 for DOS) to try to find patterns and handicap races more accurately.  My dad taught me a lot about handicapping races, paying particular attention to class moves!

Since then, I have become more involved with horse racing each passing year through a variety of different media-based roles. Once deemed the "second best racing ambassador in Chicago" (hey I've been called worse), 
I now reside in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the USA and will be covering many different aspects of racing - in my unpredictable DARK HORSE STYLE!  
 
My favorite tracks are:
Arlington
Canterbury
Del Mar
Gulfstream
Hawthorne
Keeneland
Woodbine
 
Some of my all-time favorite horses include:
